“The Burning” – PDF here– is a full length play written about the circumstances surrounding the destruction Captain Jack White’s papers following his death in Broughshane, Co. Antrim in 1946.

Any discussion on the subject of democracy faces a critical problem early on - a problem of definition. In his contribution to Low Intensity Democracy, Noam Chomsky notes the essential modus operandi of conservative forces in society today and in times past when he states that the guardians of world order have sought to establish democracy in one sense of the term while blocking it in another. read full story / add a comment

textPalestine-Israel, The joint struggle to the backdrop of Israel no longer hiding its true nature* 01:19 Sun 26 Oct by Ilan S. 0 comments

Throughout the years Israel has tried to neutralize the pressure of more enlightened people by hiding its brute racism and murderous activities by recruiting the memory of the Holocaust as justification for all its heinous acts when revealed. However, as the masquerade has been exposed in recent years and more and more are disillusioned from the "Zionist dream", the restraints are being loosened fast. The rightists preach their extreme racist ideology in the open. The "paramilitarist" settlers get a freer hand. The transfer of Palestinians both within the 1948 borders and these occupied in 1967 is being done in the open. Though it is still restricted mainly to the Israeli area of the Bedouins in the south and the C agricultural regions of the 1967 borders, the "gloves" have been removed. In the same new mode, repression of the non-armed popular struggles has intensified in the last few weeks and we cannot guess what the limit of the new repression mode will be - if at all.

Come era facilmente prevedibile le rassicurazioni diffuse e propagandate a piene mani da politici, affaristi, finanzieri e confindustriali sulla possibilità di riprendersi da quella che veniva chiamata crisi si sono dimostrate una colossale bugia. Con una ingombrante operazione di depistaggio mediatico all'insegna di "dobbiamo abbattere il debito pubblico" o "dobbiamo abbattere le Tasse", "l'Europa ce lo chiede", "dobbiamo rispettare i vincoli del deficit imposto", si è proceduto alla cancellazione quasi totale dei diritti dei lavoratori.

Depuis plus de deux ans, le Rojava (Kurdistan syrien), est engagé dans un processus révolutionnaire spécifique. Resté longtemps à l'écart de celui proposé en Syrie car considéré comme trop marqué par l'idéologie panarabe et nationaliste, puis confronté à une contre-révolution interne fasciste et religieux takfiri, le Rojava développe ses propres institutions sociales, chasse les troupes du régime de Bachar, et affronte les forces politico-religieuses ou nationalistes arabes qui tentent de liquider cette dynamique autonomiste.

Εδώ και μερικά χρόνια το κουρδικό κίνημα κινείται προς την κατεύθυνση των ελευθεριακών ιδεών. Αν και δεν είναι ένα αναρχικό κίνημα, αυτή η κίνηση είναι ένα σημάδι ότι οι αναρχικές ιδέες της ελευθερίας και της ισότητας μέσα από την αλληλεγγύη, οι ιδέες μας περί οριζοντιότητας και ριζοσπαστικής άμεσης δημοκρατίας καθώς και η ριζοσπαστική κριτική μας ενάντια στο Κράτος δεν είναι μόνο έγκυρες και ισχυρές, αλλά και αναγκαίες σε κινήματα ώστε να ξεφύγουν από την αυταρχική κληρονομιά στην αριστερά. Είναι καθήκον μας να εκφράσουμε την αλληλεγγύη μας στη Rojava και το κουρδικό κίνημα, επειδή αντιπροσωπεύουν την ελπίδα σε αυτήν την περιοχή και επειδή είναι οι καταπιεσμένοι που αγωνίζονται ενάντια στους καταπιεστές. Οι πραγματικοί αγώνες δεν είναι ποτέ τέλειοι, αλλά κουβαλούν διαφορετικές δυνατότητες για μια ελεύθερη κοινωνία. Εκφράζοντας την αλληλεγγύη μας με το επαναστατικό κίνημα στην Rojava σημαίνει ότι κατανοούμε το ρόλο μας στο να συνεχίσουμε να αναπτύσσουμε τα βασικά χαρακτηριστικά των ιδεών μας, προκειμένου να εμπνεύσουμε επαναστάσεις και επαναστάτες σε όλο τον κόσμο.

Da alcuni anni il movimento curdo sta vivendo un processo che si muove in direzione libertaria. Sebbene non si tratti di un movimento anarchico, questo processo indica che le idee anarchiche di libertà ed uguaglianza attraverso la solidarietà, attraverso la nostra idea di orizzontalità e di democrazia diretta e radicale ed attraverso la nostra critica radicale contro lo Stato non solo sono forti e valide, ma sono anche necessarie per i movimenti che vogliano operare una rottura con l'eredità autoritaria all'interno della sinistra. E' nostro dovere esprimere la nostra solidarietà con la Rojava e con il movimento curdo, poiché essi rappresentano una speranza in questa regione e perché si ergono come oppressi in lotta contro i loro oppressori. Le lotte reali non sono mai perfette ma portano con sé diversi gradi di potenzialità di realizzazione di una libera società. Nell'esprimere la nostra solidarietà al movimento rivoluzionario nella Rojava ribadiamo che il nostro ruolo è quello di continuare a sviluppare i principi fondamentali delle nostre idee allo scopo di ispirare le rivoluzioni ed i/le rivoluzionar* di tutto il mondo. - Gruppo Editoriale di Anarkismo.net [English]

rojava_1.png imageInternational Libertarian-Socialist Statement in Solidarity with the Kurdish Resistance 04:36 Sun 19 Oct by Johnny 2 comments

For some years now the Kurdish movement has been moving in the direction of libertarian ideas. While not an anarchist movement, this move is a sign that anarchist ideas of freedom and equality through solidarity, our ideas of horizontality and radical direct democracy and our radical critique against the State are not only valid and strong, but are also necessary for movements in order to break away from the authoritarian legacy within the left. It is our duty to express our solidarity with Rojava and the Kurdish movement, because they represent hope in this region and because they are the oppressed fighting the oppressors. Real struggles are never perfect but they carry diverse degrees of potential to being about a free society. Expressing our solidarity with the revolutionary movement in Rojava means we understand our role is to continue developing the core tenets of our ideas in order to inspire revolutions and revolutionaries all over the world. - Anarkismo.net Editorial Group [Italiano] [Ελληνικά] [Castellano]

Εδώ και ένα μήνα, στην πόλη Κομπανί, κοντά στα σύνορα της Συρίας με την Τουρκία, κουρδικές ένοπλες αντάρτικες ομάδες δίνουν έναν αγώνα ενάντια στους φονταμενταλιστές και επεκτατιστές του ISIS. Η επίθεση ξεκίνησε στις 15/9 όταν χιλιάδες μαχητές του ISIS, υποστηριζόμενοι από δεκάδες άρματα μάχης και βαρύ πυροβολικό επιτέθηκαν στην πόλη σε τρία μέτωπα. Μέχρι αυτή την στιγμή, 2000 κούρδοι πολιτοφύλακες δίνουν ηρωικές μάχες ενάντια στους 10000 μαχητές του ισλαμικού κράτους και έχουν καταφέρει να ανακτήσουν εδάφη μέσα και έξω από την πόλη. Οι απώλειες για τον εχθρό είναι μεγάλες τόσο σε έμψυχο δυναμικό αλλά και όσον αφορά βαρύ οπλισμό και οχήματα που πέφτουν στα χέρια των ανταρτών.

imageLos financistas del mundo y la elección en Brasil Oct 24 by BrunoL 0 comments

La segunda vuelta de las elecciones brasileras tiene relación directa con: la proyección del país, la alianza estratégica del bloque político del Mercado Común del Sur (MERCOSUR) y el alineamiento del Brasil dentro de la globalización corporativa: La política exterior de Lula extendida por Dilma (con algunas correcciones en su pragmatismo) es estructuralmente distinta de la del período de Fernando Henrique Cardoso. Se cambiaron el eje y el enfoque. A escala mundial nuestro país refuerza las relaciones Sur-Sur, priorizando específicamente las inversiones en infraestructura y cadenas productivas de América Latina y África. Brasil es hoy un motor del capitalismo mundial. Quien gane en las urnas comandará la 7ª economía mundal.

Lucien van der Walt defiende que los sindicatos se han desviado con reivindicaciones tecnocráticas y que la reivindicación de la protección social debería estar conectada a la lucha de la clase trabajadora para reinventar la sociedad.
